Magnificent Ladakh

Ladakh is the home for Tibetan Buddhism in India and has become popular for one of the most exciting motorcycle road trip India offers. Its people have been receiving travellers since the time of the Silk Route. The Ladakhis, ancient as they maybe, are simple and humble people. Warm, welcoming, friendly and honest are the best ways to describe them. The land resonates this compassion through its rich spiritual vibrations.


A Motorcycle Trip is the best way to discover this land of high passes. The ride focuses on some of the most rugged terrains of India and yet it is one of the most enriching experiences you’ll ever have. We explore the Ladakhi culture through their food, homestays, monasteries, people, roads and much more.
